This is what I was looking for. So exhaust setup for the z39 seems the way to go. Nice.i know the new design and materials are better but I just fail to see if the temps are going to be much better. I figure you can just slap a fan on top which is probably going to have more impact than front fans (correct me if I am wrong) but more than anything I love that you stay true to your vision and keep it as you want. Keep up the good job, I will make sure to stay posted on 4+ updates
I want to use this post to give an update on my pc temps because someone had a similar specs to mine:
swapped stock fan (intake) to noctua (exhaust)
temps are generally better (perhaps 5 to 10?) but the noise, oh boy you can actually feel the impact there.
It is very hard to compare before to now but considering my room was like 25 to 30 degrees and I was hitting 95 stock fan to 85 on a 30 to 35 room while running cinebench on all cores I would say it is quite worth the upgrade
granted I undervolted the cpu while on the first test I didn’t I still think it is quite an improvement
gpu temps are decent since I also made changes there, sits at 65-70 in a 30 degrees room while playing poe
cpu goes up to 70-75 while playing Csgo with fps capped to 400
specs were 5600 on z39 noctua swap and Evga 3060ti
Also turning off pbo on 5600x is supposed to drop temps considerably. Does anyone know if the drawbacks are substantial for gaming if I do this.
Last question. I'm a bit of a noob undervolting a GPU and not really comfortable doing it. Is there a simpler way of getting 3060ti temps down a little? Is temp limit a decent way of doing it in msi afterburner? I don't mind reduced performance if it isn't too drastic. I just want to have my system as quiet as I can get it.
